re: *First Post* need advice on midi sync looper

What Aaron said.  If you want a looper that chases a
moving clock, the Repeater is king.  Also, you can do
the inverse of having the tempo change and pitch stay
the same, and move the pitch around.  Shame your only
chance of buying one is the used market, but such is
the looper market right now.
